From John Scheepers: I replaced my rotted Misty Trumpet this fall, and then added Fairy Tale and Trentino. Trentino is really sweet, I would expect a fragrance..so far, no...

That fatso is Fairy Tale with a bun in the oven, or rather On The Side! Then Misty, shooting up a bud, and Trentino showing her bountiful scape.

A bit washed out in the window sun, but 2 Trentino blooms greeted me this evening!

UNFAIR Cindee....I've had Misty for 2 years and she still hasn't bloomed!! Don't you love Fairy Tale?? Can't wait to see your blooms. Many of us had blooms that were subtley different last year...but a great bulb. Please share more!

Cindee, how big is your "Trentino" bulb? Did you just get it this year?

I know Josh, My Trentino is very very small.....hmmmmm

RE: Trentino 'n pals

I got 3 Trentinos from Scheepers this year and the bulbs were about the size of tennis balls (22/24 cm) or, just a little smaller. Hadeco bulbs that I got from other vendors were golf ball sized (16/18 cm) or smaller. But all of them bloomed with the same number of scapes and 'crazed' intensity of typical Hadeco cultivars. So in my case, size didn't matter.....LOL.

Cindee, I love your Trentino - and can't wait to see Misty pictures! Alana

Look at all those bulbs with scapes emerging! You gonna have many blooms to enjoy.

Congrats, Cindee.

Donna, she is actually not "busting out" but setting atop Perlite in a small vase w/ plastic water bottle bottom to hold a capful of water so the roots reach toward the bottom. She came with crispy-fried dried roots that I removed and 1 fat stubby root. She has already grown 5 new white roots!

Jim is right-She is a dainty little Amaryllis. Her bottom barely fills the top of a coke can! And her blooms are small and pert. She really is my smallest flower/bulb to date.

(GOD my hands look so old in that photo!!)

She has an etherial, angelic quality in this photo-It's my favorite.

From 2010-2011 Amaryllis

Her green throat is very bold! Her petals slightly curled.

From 2010-2011 Amaryllis

She was definitely worth less than $6 just before they sold out....LUCKY ME!!

Beautiful photos Cindee, especially the second to the last..we have to be careful when we take pictures with all these mega-pixels that we keep our ageing body parts out of the picture...believe me, I know all too well..!

Donna...thank GOD I wasn't standing in front of a mirror!!! LOL
Xuan, dear friend, just think of the sweet seeds she can make for you!

Donna and Alana, my Misty before I let her rot when I could not get to her...she is so sweet too, I just wish i had some better photos of her - may she rest in peace!

AND...Guess what Fairy Tale is now poking up a bud???? YAY! or what????

RE: Trentino 'n pals

Cindee, Misty is/was gorgeous, but you've got another right(?) and I'm sure she'll be just as beautiful....and I "think" I've got one too and she'd poking up a bud, kind of strange looking bud rather flat...I just love Fairy Tale, got her in a mislabel, my lucky day...and she's great to do crosses with, both ways...;-)

Donna,

My "Misty" has a very funny shaped scape as well! I'm incredibly excited, two scapes have both popped up, can't wait to see the blooms! I bought two bulbs from two different suppliers hoping I could avoid mislabels :)

RE: Trentino 'n pals

Cindee, that Misty is gorgeous. I bought 6 last year and every single one of them turned out to be Susans. Sigh. Thanks for the picture!

RE: Trentino 'n pals

Cindee, I was inspired by all the beautiful Misty's photos from you guys so that I ordered one for myself from RC this season. And... my bulb's scaping! Yeah!!!

I'm crossing my fingers that my Misty will be a true Misty.

But I can see that your Trentino (?) is gorgeous. I really love that photo of her against the blue sky.

Thanks for sharing.

Xuan

PS: never mind your hand. Who will not be old anyway???
